‘lucetta’ is series of small magnetic bicycle lights for palomar by helsinki-based designer emanuele pizzolorusso that have been developed to stay securely in place on even the bumpiest of roads. easily attachable to several different parts of a bike, the two small LED fixtures – white for the front, red for the rear – can be switched on and off with just one click. once a destination is reached, the portable accessory can be linked together, conveniently slipping into your pocket for storage.

  • Too bad aluminium is not magnetic…

  • Nice idea .. the headlamp illuminates the sky .. and there are a zillion others already well developed, so he has a lot of headwinds. I do love magnets tho’.

  • BRAVO!

    L says:
  • Wow this is cool…
    Bicycles that don’t have any steel part are probably less than 1%
    This is made for the rest 99%

    Pablo says:
  • surely the main function of a set of bike lights is to light the way ahead and alert other people to the presence of the cyclist?
    i fail to see how this product achieves either of these objectives satisfactorily…

    looks ‘nice’ though :/

    bigshape says:
  • Good idea, but most bikes have alloy frames & alloy seat poles. Somehow it ain’t gonna work on them designer ppl!! That’s when you need an add-on for this problem and then these bike owners don’t lose out too!

    Ian Galloway says:
  • Cool. For a fridge door.

    Marius says:
  • These lights look a lot like the Magnetic Bike Light designed by CopenhagenParts some tume ago.

    Ba Zuidwijk says:
  • I would have thought that there would have been an angle to both pieces so that the light in front was at least facing level and the light in back was doing somewhat the same.
    There could have been a’notch’ in the design to align them nicely for the pocket.
    The idea is lovely but I think one might benefit from giving up a bit of the purity in the design for function.
    And no; these do not need to light the way as much as they need to make others aware of their presence.
